2  and that you may recount in the hearing of your sons and of your sons’ sons how I made a mockery of the Egyptians and how I displayed My signs among them—in order that you may know that I am Hashem.”

10:2 In order that you may know that I am Hashem

A group of hikers in the southern region of Israel.

Until now, Hashem has said that the ten plagues are meant to teach the Egyptians that He is the true God. At this point, He adds another dimension: The plagues are also intended to cause the Children of Israel to recognize God. Sometimes, even people of faith need a spiritual boost. After living in Egypt for generations, the Jewish people have been influenced by their idolatrous surroundings. The plagues serve to remind them that Hashem runs the world, as they demonstrate God’s control over everything: Water, earth, the animal kingdom, health, flying insects, light and human life. This lesson is especially important as the Children of Israel are about to follow God into the wilderness on their journey to the Promised Land. Jews are commanded to remember the exodus every day of their lives. The memory of the miracles that took place then, helps strengthen our faith and ability to meet life’s constant challenges.

    Great comment! I am always aware of many references to the Hebrews in the scriptures. Many source interchangeable refer to Israel as "the Jews". I know to many, the difference is acceptable, however the Jews were one twelve-th the nation Israel. Its would be like referring to the United state as Alabama. The nation Israel today IS representative of predominately of the tribe os JUDAH, Later in the scripture we read of the removal of Judah's brothers because of sin. They are scattered to the nations around them loosing their tribal identities. They are mixed into the nations all around the world. Their dispersal was their punishment for forsaking G_D. To be sure there are also prophecies(promises) that they will be reunited at a future time. We as humans miss bits and pieces, or don't understand where the pieces come together. We all mean well, however our greatest responsibility is what Moshe said at the parting of the sea.

    But Moshe said to the people, “Have no fear! Stand by, and witness the deliverance which Hashem will work for you today; for the Egyptians whom you see today you will never see again.14 Hashem will battle for you; you hold your peace!” (Exodus 14:13-14.)

  • Yes that's a often forgotten point. The plagues also called forth (had the intention to call forth) hope with the Israelites and faith in the carrying out of the by Moshe unfolded plans of Hashem

  • I started my journey over fifty years ago and uh yhvh has lead all the way and I have many experiences and testings and trials but He has been faithful and I have the promise of my final destination “Heaven”. I am now 71 years ago and looking for the blessed hope.
